ABSTRACT

Effect of peak expiratory flow rate and blood pressure on obesity has increased across the globe and care must be taken to reduce the trend. Results shows that 72.7% of the male and 70.0% of the female had normal blood pressure (BP) while 27.3% of the male and 30.0% of the female had abnormal (increased BP) blood pressure. Peak expiratory flow rate for obesed subjects had mean 351.60±26.25 and 427.22±43.73 for non-obesed. The obesed subjects had systolic BP mean 137.37±12.06 and non obesed 115.41±10.71 and diastolic BP 82.84±9.23 for obesed and 77.15±8.15 for non-obesed. The body mass index (BMI) of obesed subjects had mean 35.28±4.72 and 22.64±3.05 for non-obesed. Also, the study shows that the mean age for obesed subjects is 39.68±9.86 and 37.85±12.02 for non-obesed subjects. The study shows that 52 subjects were engaged and 37 of them had normal BP and 15 had abnormal BP. 13 out of the 15 subjects that had abnormal BP were obesed and 2 were non-obesed.

Keywords: Effect, Peak Expiratory Flow Rate, Blood Pressure, Okrika.
